...and I'm coming out of my brief hiatus everyone :) Surprise! First convention I'm coming back to is Otakon, and I would definitely appreciate some costume suggestions! I've already got Cammy White in progress, and I'm looking to bring on 2 more, and with any luck, I'll be getting 3+ more costumes together for my first Dragon*Con! So, the more suggestions, the merrier!

Hey, my name is Colleen, I'm 21 years old and I've been cosplaying since 2004.
I am a HUGE NERD. I play video games, watch anime, and read manga. I'm also slowly getting into American comics as well. I have an amazing fiancee, an awesome family, and some kickass friends. I would take a bullet for all of them.
As far as cosplay goes, I make all of my own costumes, props, and accessories. I have made over 20 costumes over the years for myself and friends, but I have only recently decided to document each one. I really enjoy cosplaying, I have met so many great people and good friends, and I am looking forward to making as many costumes as I can!
On the other side of the spectrum, I also enjoy drawing, painting, writing, sculpting, woodworking, and just expressing myself in as many different ways as possible. I am currently in college pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Art Education. I work as a figure model for my University's art department and I have modeled for photographers and friends in the past, and enjoy it immensely. I am always looking for other photographers, cosplayers, and artists to work/collaborate with, and I love meeting new people and trying new things.
Also...if you have any questions or need any guidance as far as making/constructing different projects, let me know. I'll help you out the best I can.

Current Residence: The Land of Milk and Honey
Favourite genre of music: Rock, Alternative, Metal, Electronica, Classical, Big Band, etc...
Favourite cartoon character: Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Yoko Ritona, Haruko Haruhara, Faye Valentine
Personal Quote: "You can't run away from yourself, you are always right behind you."
